Confessions Of A Closet Christian: Why Do We Censor God?

Jana Thumbnail Big 2

[display_podcast] When I hear the word “censor,” I think of the bleep sound I hear when someone swears on live TV.  Censoring serves its purposes. When I think about God, in my head – He’s the most important thing in my life.  But I’d rather only eat Fiber One cereal for a month than say that out loud. When it comes to God, I play the censor, I’m my own bleep button.

Jana Thumbnail Big 2

[display_podcast] When I hear the word, “idol”, I think of the Israelites worshipping a golden calf in the desert while Moses was away on a mountain. It’s hard to relate to a people bowing down before a hunk of metal in the shape of a bovine.  I’ve never once had the impulse to do this. As a child, I thought I had the idol thing covered.  I mean, the second of the ten commandments says:  You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or … [Read more...]
